Our Federal Government Determined That it Will Control and Censor the Internet With or Without SOPA/PIPA

It’s blatantly disgusting! And any American who willing stands by to allow our government to employ such Stalinist-like control and censorship over the one remaining mechanism to express freedom of speech, belongs in an internment camp.

While some of us are focusing on stopping SOPA/PIPA, it is doing absolutely nothing to stop the feds from shutting down websites willy-nilly. What ever happened to DUE PROCESS?

Check out the Drudge Report this morning! And here are some of the links Drudge provides that show government overstepping authority and shredding of our constitution:

1.) US government hits Megaupload with mega piracy indictment

2.) Anonymous Goes on Megaupload Revenge Spree: DoJ, RIAA, MPAA, and Universal Music All Offline

3.) Google Is Already Using SOPA-Like Censorship

4.) Republicans stand together to oppose piracy law And don’t forget it was many of the faux republicans who wrote and supported SOPA/PIPA.

It’s time to wake up and get rid of every one of these bastards who have no regard for our freedoms! Or you can sit by and do and say nothing……Komrades!

SOPA/PIPA Misunderstood by Those Who Misunderstand the Misunderstood

SOPA and PIPA are acronyms for U.S. House and Senate bills designed to censor the Internet and in particular a focus on putting out of business political pundits and anyone who associates with or perhaps even “links” to those websites.

In Politico yesterday, Tim Mak quotes Erick Erickson of Red State:

“Congress has proven it does not understand the Internet. Perhaps they will understand brute strength against them at the ballot box. If members of Congress do not pull their name from co-sponsorship of SOPA, the left and right should pledge to defeat each and every one of them.”

While I can share in the sentiments that “brute strength” at the ballot box might oust certain supporters in Congress of SOPA/PIPA, I have to disagree with Erickson’s assessment that “Congress has proven it does not understand the Internet”. On the contrary! I believe Congress completely understands the Internet and thus this is the real reason for SOPA/PIPA and all other Internet limiting/censoring bills that have been proposed over the years.

Government works everyday to limit our freedoms and destroy our rights. A free and uncontrolled-by-government Internet is a direct threat to Congress and the White House.

Congress completely understands that the freedom to exercise one’s first amendment rights via the Internet does not bode well for them. They fear truth and work hard to suppress it. Truth always wins out in the end so why should Congress fear the Internet?

We shouldn’t buy into some claim that Congress is ignorant of the Internet. They simply want to usurp that power and freedom away from their subjects as well. Ultimately it’s all about control. Freedom is the antithesis of control.
